Ora is a project that contributes to improving the mental health of young New Zealanders through a proactive system.

The Ora design and strategy was created using a user-centred approach. Through our process, we identified that 13–15 year olds key needs are to be engaged, facilitated, equipped and supported. Ora is an accessible digital platform that facilitates our young people to thrive, rather than a resource they come to use once they already have a low mood.

Ora takes a proactive approach by making the concept of wellbeing applicable to everyday life, building self-awareness and equipping our audience with evidence-based tools they need to be resilient.
